BACKGROUND Microfracture is a frequently used technique for the repair of articular cartilage lesions of the knee. Despite the popularity of the technique, prospective information about the clinical results after microfracture is still limited. The purpose of our study was to identify the factors that affect the clinical outcome from this cartilage repair(More)
Injury to the posterolateral structures of the knee, including the popliteus tendon and arcuate complex, frequently results in poorly understood patterns of instability. To evaluate the static function of these tissues, we used a mechanical testing apparatus that allowed five degrees of freedom to test seventeen specimens from human cadavera at angles of(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee may be treated nonoperatively with adjustable valgus bracing. HYPOTHESIS Valgus bracing reduces load on the medial compartment through the application of an external valgus moment about the knee, resulting in pain relief. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. METHODS Eleven(More)
A method for directly measuring the position of the humeral head on the face of the glenoid in different positions of abduction of the arm was developed. We studied three subject groups: 12 patients with normal shoulders (group 1), 15 patients with stage II impingement syndrome (group 2), and 20 patients with rotator cuff tears or stage III impingement(More)
The normal vascular anatomy of the menisci was investigated in five dogs by histology and tissue-clearing (Spalteholz) techniques. The vessels were found to originate in the perimeniscal capsular and synovial tissues and penetrate the peripheral 25% of the meniscal tissues. The vascular response to complete midportion transection of the medial meniscus was(More)
We studied the gross, histological, and vascular anatomy of the glenoid labrum in twenty-three fresh-frozen shoulders from cadavera to demonstrate its cross-sectional anatomy, its microvascularity, and its attachments. The superior and anterosuperior portions of the labrum are loosely attached to the glenoid, and the macro-anatomy of those portions is(More)
Twenty-four patients who had posterior subluxation of the glenohumeral joint were assigned to one of two groups on the basis of the severity of the symptoms. The sixteen patients in Group I, who had less severe symptoms, were treated with a physical therapy program that was based on exercises to strengthen muscles. The eleven patients in Group II (three of(More)
A new biomodular prosthesis was used for the treatment of a displaced fracture of the proximal part of the humerus in twenty-two shoulders in twenty-two patients. The fractures were classified according to the Neer system; there were thirteen four-part, five three-part, and four head-splitting fractures. There were fifteen women and seven men, and the mean(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the contributions of specific capsuloligamentous structures to restraining superior-inferior translation of the glenohumeral joint. Eleven cadaveric shoulders were tested using a four degrees-of-freedom test apparatus. The humerus was free to translate in three planes and free to flex and extend when a superior and(More)
BACKGROUND Many patient-based knee-rating scales are available for the evaluation of athletic patients. However, there is little information on the measurement properties of these instruments and therefore no evidence to support the use of one questionnaire rather than another. The goal of the present study was to determine the reliability, validity, and(More)
